How can we make PadKeys better?

Compress the Keyboard in Horizontal-Mode (by choice)

I ask for an alternate compressed mode/layout for the keyboard in horizontal mode. That mode should be switched only by choice. I found out by testing many apps, that many of them expect a specific space (height) of the keyboard, especially in horizontal mode. To often apps are using the ios gray shortcut panel for necessary functions as in notes or pages. Most times I need both - the PadKeys panel plus the ios panel. But than at some apps I can even not view, what I am typing because it is shown in the vertical middle of the screen. I attaced two pictures, to show how the original and also an optional keyboard would look like.

    Thank you for the suggestion. We have implemented this in the just-released version 2.1.2. When in landscape mode, you may long-press the keyboard-away key to toggle a shorter layout. This layout will be “remembered” until you switch it back, but in portrait mode it is not active (since they keyboard is already short enough, relatively speaking). Note also that this mode is not active on the large iPad Pro since a shorter layout is used by default there anyway.

        But I have to let You kow, that this update crashes PadKeys until I deleted and reinstalled it. (I wrote this just inform You an other user about this problem and workaround).
